Enjoying the sacred with an ancient poem

I settled at Cold Mountain long ago,
Already it seems like years and years.My 'Cold Mountain'
Freely drifting, I prowl the woods and streams
And linger watching things themselves
Men don’t get this far into the mountains,
White clouds gather and billow.
Thin grass does for a mattress,
The blue sky makes a good quilt.
Happy with a stone underhead
Let heaven and earth go about their changes.

–Early Tang Poet Han ShanDSCN0517
